Equipping a classroom with 21st century capabilities can be a complex process. With many classrooms outfitted with many different brands and models of equipment, it is often difficult to find products that are compatible and durable enough to withstand even a year of continuous classroom use. Califone now offers a complete 21st century classroom suite with the introduction of an interactive whiteboard, model WB80.
The WB80 is unlike other whiteboards, in that is can be mounted to virtually any surface with ease, regardless of electrical outlets or strength of the wall. The WB80 comes equipped with sensor pieces that are attached to any blank wall or whiteboard surface, creating a 48 inch by 64 inch interactive whiteboard space. Once the sensors are in place and the included software installed onto any PC using a Windows operating system, the whiteboard is ready for use, running solely on USB power.
The innovative WB80 assembles in a snap against any smooth, flat wall.
The WD80 whiteboard surface runs by touch or with a pointer device, allowing for classroom flexibility and frugality. The whiteboard also integrates seamlessly with the company’s entire line of audio-visual solutions for the classroom, including PA systems, media players and headphones, allowing for a fully emmersive 21st century classroom experience.
“Students today need 21st century technology to keep engaged in learning,” said Tim Ridgway, VP of marketing, Califone. “The WB80 completes the Califone 21st century classroom suite, allowing teachers and learners to experience the sights and sounds of education together.”
Recent research shows cost, teacher training, and product and software compatibility are significant challenges to integrating interactive whiteboards in the classroom. The Califone WB80 enables schools to overcome these barriers, providing an affordable, easy-to-use product that teachers can incorporate into their instruction with ease to enliven curriculum lessons with media-rich resources and applications. The product is also designed to withstand years of rigorous use for a low total cost of ownership.
The WB80 comes with a one-year warranty, including educational use, with service support available through authorized dealers nationwide.
